Video: Mushroom Etouffee

Mushroom Etoufee Como Water

E-tou-who? E-tou-what? E-tou-huh? This month’s advanced cooking class video features mushroom étouffée! Étouffée is a cajun/creole classic usually made with shellfish. It translates to “smothered” in French, is usually served with rice, and is super popular in Louisiana. I made my étouffée the veg-centric way with a combo of mushrooms and a deep, brown roux. Note that my recipe calls for Worcheshire sauce. Traditional Worcheshire sauce contains anchovies (or other fish-based ingredients), so check the store for a vegan version (like Annie’s) if you’d prefer to keep this totally plant-based. Comforting, rich, and inexpensive–in short, the perfect dinner or weekend lunch! Enjoy folks! 😀
